The member representing Zango/Jaba Federal Constituency, at the National Assembly, Hon. Amos Gwamna Magaji, has condemned in strong terms over the recent attack on innocent residents of Warkan Community in Atyap Chiefdom, and Katsit Community of Bajju Cheifdom in Zango Kataf local government area of Kaduna State respectively.
Magaji who expressed concern in a press statement he personally signed and issued to Journalists in Kaduna over the weekend, said the sad event occured on the early hours of Thursday in Warkan Community which resulted to killings of 9 people while 2 people were shot dead at Katsit Community.
He described the act as barbaric and evil on innocent Communities who are going about their normal businesses.
According to him he received the news about the killing of 9 people within his Constituency at the early hours of Friday, July 10, 2021 with a heavy heart.
“I was also briefed with a similar situation where Katsit, a community under the Bajju Traditional Chiefdom in Zango Kataf Local Government, came under severe attack by suspected Fulani Militia which they shot at anyone on sight and killed 2 persons while 3 others sustained various degrees of injuries.
He said the evil carnage inflicted on the Community was totally a violation of the sanctity of human lives.
Magaji lamented that the development came at a time peace efforts by relevant Stakeholders were underway in the area following attacks on Communities which left scores of people dead and properties destroyed,” he said.
He noted that the barbaric act was a deliberate attempt by mischief makers to disrupt the relative peace that the ethnic tribes are enjoying.
” I sympathize with the Atyap traditional Council, the Bajju Cheifdom and the affected Family victims, prayed to God for the repose of their soul.
Hon Magaji who is deeply sad with the development called on the security operatives manning the areas not to relent in their efforts to apprehend the perpartrators of the dastardly act and bring them to book.
” We are calling on the Kaduna State government and the security agencies to double their effort and to rise up to their full constitutional responsibilities.
He however, wish to call on his constituents to be more vigilant and circumspect in the face of unprovocks and unwarranted attacks.
